A writer since the age of ten, Joann Keder wrote her first novel at twelve, but always convinced herself she wasn't good enough, smart enough, etc. In addition, she had a real lack of a "core" or sense of self her entire life. Part of that confusion was due to being an adoptee who didn't fit in with her family or the small town where she grew up. Consequently, she went through several bouts of depression, both large and small. In mid-life though, she took a leap and earned her master's degree in creative writing, not as a career path but to prove she could do it.
Fast forward to today, and Joann has written eight novels (two are award-winners) and has several more planned. Listen in today to hear the frank, inspirational story of a person who found her lifeline in writing. Don't miss it!
